I am so very happy to hear that my kid sister is finally coming to town for her first road trip since the baby was born. A 6 hour drive, road trip, isn’t something that she can handle very often and now that there is a baby involved I’m afraid we will not be seeing the baby as often as we would like to, unless of course one of us gets behind the wheel and makes the drive down there for a visit, which is something that we need to start doing more of now. This baby is the first baby born into the family in over 13 years so there is a lot of celebrating going on and people are very anxious to get their hands onto this little bundle of joy and spoil her rotten.
It has been so long since a baby was around any of us that we are not up to speed on our baby proofing efforts. She (her name is Charli Rose) is only 2 months old right now and can’t get into too much trouble right now, but time flies and the next thing we know she will be crawling all around and getting into all the things that she isn’t supposed to get into, of course, that is to be expected out of any baby. Now a days they have really great baby products and you can buy just about anything you need online these days. I’ve been looking at some Extra Wide Baby Gates to place in my home when the time comes.
My door ways are extra wide, for some reason, so it will take something that is extra wide to get the job done. Not having the right kind of Baby Gates can lead to disaster so I want to make sure that I get the best Child Safety Gates that are on the market, so I’m taking my time and doing a bit of research before just dishing out my money on the first thing that I see. There is an awesome website at KidSafeInc.com that I have found some great safety items which I’ve urged some other family member to take a look at and possibly buy some baby proofing products as well by sending them all the link.
I can’t wait for that weekend to get here, I’ve been missing my baby sister and her precious Charli Rose as well, since I’ve only gotten to see her once since she is born. I’m sure that she will be my arms more than anyone’s this visit and they will have to pry her out of my arms when it is time for them to leave. I’m getting a bit choked up just thinking about it, crazy right?
For the past year I have been preparing for my daughters sweet sixteen birthday party that she has been talking about since she learned about how big a sweet sixteen party usually is celebrated by many people. She had come up with so many themes and never ending ideas for how it play out. I warned her I wouldn’t go all out like they do on her favorite show on MTV, Sweet Sixteen.
She knew not to expect anything over the top but needless to say I put a ton of effort into making it as close as I possibly could to her dream sweet sixteen. For an entire year before her sixteenth birthday I have been spending my nights that she is away at a friends house on the computer finding the best bargains I could find, and I came across some really cool sites, but on in particular made the whole night a glowing celebration.
I found these awesome classic black lights at guitar center online, for a unbelievable price and ordered 2 dozen black lights to place around the party area for her birthday, and it was the most talked about thing all night long at her sweet sixteen. Even though her birthday wasn’t as extravagant as they are on TV, but it was a unforgettable night for her and her guests, I couldn’t be any happier for how her birthday turned out.
My oldest Uncle is turning 58 next week, and my family and I have pulled together a great family get together, to celebrate. My only concern was that I wouldn’t be able find a present in time, that could also fit my budget. Luckily my Aunt told me a few things he has been wanting for quit sometime. He owns a few accordions that he has had for many years now, and has been looking for an accordion backpack, to help him carry it comfortably with him when he travels. He loves to show his talents off around the world with these awesome instruments.
So I thought I would search the web a bit and see what I could find, and was so amazed to find a great website in so little time with exactly what I thought my Uncle would want and they promised to have it delivered in time for the big event. He opened his present up at his party our family threw for him, and I honestly have got to say my Uncle face lit up like Ive never seen it before. Not only was my Uncle extremely happy with his gift but my wallet is just as happy too.
It is that time of the year again that I need to start thinking of who I am going to send the birthday invitations out to for my Dad’s birthday that is coming up quicker than I care to think of. Since my mother passed away I have tried to do as much as I can to make his life an easier one and happy one and throwing him birthday parties always seems to lighten up his mood for a time.
This year he will be turning 75 so I really want to make this one a special one. He has a lot of friends, but so many live so far away or are in bad health that it makes it a real challenge to get a good list going on.
Been checking out the kobo ereader reviews in an attempt to find the best ereader out there for my teenaged daughter to purchase with her birthday money that she received last week. She seems to think that if she owns one of these that she will read more over the summer months, now how is a parent going to argue with that? She has never been a fan of reading until this last year, but really hates going to the library and there are not any books stores open around here. You have to drive well over an hour to find any book store and that really bites.
